Obviously you havent seen "steamboy" the movie!

I say Heck Yeah it can be done! Part of the problem is understanding the nature of physics and particles.

Every time we recite by rote what a thing "is" we stop being scientists and experimenters. What you stated has validity only in what has been tried to date. C'mon folks can we engage our brains a bit more?
